Cookie Jar Idea

If you are like me you love to give handmade gift items to friends and family or you love to have things on hand that you can take as a hostess gift when invited to someone's home. I created the cookie jar above with this in mind. This piece recently appeared in Simply Handmade which is a Scrapbook Trends publication. I used the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird collection to create this piece.  This is my favorite Cosmo Cricket line ever!

Do a google search for "Cookie Jar recipes" and you will turn up a lot of different recipes to fill your jar. Then alter the outside how you like and add a recipe card to it somewhere that will explain what other liquid ingredients are needed to create the cookies so the receiver can whip up an easy batch of cookie dough!
